The Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database

A bioinformatic database of resistance genes, their products and associated phenotypes.

3713 Ontology Terms, 2357 Reference Sequences, 955 SNPs, 2335 Publications, 2389 AMR Detection Models

Browse

The CARD is a rigorously curated collection of known resistance determinants and associated antibiotics, organized by the Antibiotic Resistance Ontology (ARO) and AMR gene detection models.

Analyze

The CARD includes tools for analysis of molecular sequences, including BLAST and the Resistance Gene Identifier (RGI) software for prediction of resistome based on homology and SNP models.

Download

CARD data can be downloaded in a number of formats. RGI software is available as a command-line tool. View changes in CARD curation. CARD is updated monthly.

Prevalence

A new computer-generated data set on the prevalence of AMR genes and variants among the sequenced genomes, plasmids, and whole-genome shotgun assemblies available at NCBI for clinically important pathogens.
